Photographer's Note

A canal near Quới Sơn, Châu Thành, Bến Tre, Vietnam in the Mekong delta.

We were canoeing down this beautiful canal, overhung with palms. It was quiet, peaceful, mysterious even. Then another canoe roared past, powered by a large outboard motor. It broke the spell, but also reminded me that the local inhabitants, even in this quite remote spot, had every right to the stuff of modern life. What right had I to expect them all to be living in an antiquated time-capsule?
